Private Line Point to Point | Print |

If you require Point-to-Point Private Lines, BMG Communications can help you get the most aggressive pricing available. We can also provision service just about anywhere, through our network of partners and service providers. If you are trying to create a network for voice or data transmission, we will consult with you to determine the best possible route, all based upon your needs and goals.

Typical advantages of a Private Line (Point-to-Point) Circuit:

  • Dedicated Circuit:
    A Private Line is a dedicated circuit, meaning it is always on. No matter what time of the day or night, the Private Line awaits your voice or data traffic, ready to transmit up to the full provisioned capacity.

  • Flat Rate Billing:
    Typically, Private Lines are billed at a flat rate, meaning that no matter how much you use it, the billing stays the same. This is particularly advantageous for organizations that plan to use significant bandwidth or regardless of the bandwidth, the connection needs to be available for long periods of time. With a Private Line, excessive usage charges can be avoided from other services.

  • Simplicity:
    Private Lines are simple to provision, connect to and maintain. With simple design, installation and billing, a Private Line network is probably the easiest way to connect two or more locations.

  • Flexibility:
    Private Lines are similar to an empty pipe. Unlike some other transmission services, a Private Line does not restrict what type of traffic you transmit. Data packets, IP packets, Voice over IP packets, traditional switched voice circuits, the list goes on. Depending on the customer premise equipment and the way the circuit is provisioned, there is a lot that can be done with a Private Line.

  • Security:
    Last but not least, security is a huge concern for businesses of all sizes. Despite the advances in security as it relates to networking platforms that utilize public mediums, such as IP-VPNs, Private Lines are provisioned as dedicated circuits from each customer end, through the carrier's network. Therefore, the perception is that Private Lines are the most secure form of Wide Area Networking.

Here are some common uses for Private Lines:

  • Small Network:
    As companies grow, they often grow beyond four walls. As other locations are established, the need for connectivity usually follows. If you have more than one location and need a simple connection between two or more computer networks, a Private Line may be the way to go. Private Lines can be scaled to accommodate varying bandwidth requirements, from as little as a 56 kbps circuit, to a full-blown T1 at 1.544 Mbps for small networks.

  • Large Network:
    The more locations a network has, the more logical it usually becomes to consolidate the WAN into a more virtual network such as Frame Relay, ATM or IP-VPN. However, depending on the needs and goals of the client, there are reasons to build Private Lines. For example, if the locations are not dispersed across great distances, making it less cost prohibitive, and there is a demand for high availability, Private Lines may be a better solution.

  • Mission-Critical & Disaster-Recovery:
    Other great applications for small or large networks include provisioning Private Lines for Mission-Critical and Disaster-Recovery scenarios.

    For example, if a client has a predominately Frame Relay or IP-VPN network, but requires Mission-Critical connectivity between two primary points, they may consider connecting the two locations with a Private Line, and simply use the overlay of the Frame-Relay or IP-VPN for redundancy in the event of a failure.

    Similarly, if the key concern was Disaster Recovery for a Mission-Critical connection, but cost was still a concern, it may be more cost effective to increase the bandwidth of the two primary locations Frame-Relay or IP-VPN connection, and use a smaller, less costly, Private Line as the redundant connection. This way, the client is paying less for the primary big-bandwidth connection, but in the event of a failure, the smaller, yet very reliable, Private Line is waiting in the wings to keep things running until the other circuit can be restored.

  • VoIP:
    Voice over IP, or VoIP, means just that, Voice traveling over an Internet Protocol. It does not necessarily mean traveling over the public Internet. In other words, the public Internet still poses some challenges as it relates to transmitting quality VoIP traffic. Whereas, if the network carrying the VoIP traffic can be controlled, the quality greatly increases. Many companies, that have satellite locations, are running VoIP traffic, sometimes along with their network traffic, across Private Lines between locations. With the right equipment, this may eliminate costly long distance charges, while creating seamless integration of their Phone and Voice Mail Systems in two or more locations.

  • Traditional Voice:
    If you are in need of a tie line across town, or across the country, please see the Private Line section under Voice Services!
